Eat Your Robot!

Posted in Uncategorized on November 22, 2011 by michaelwoodman

A sinister new immersion composition supergroup featuring:

Mike Woodman (Thumpermonkey),
John Mackenzie (Godzilla Black / The Legion Of Doom),
Pablo Tato (Tinnitia, Psicotropia, Pillarcat),
Mike Hutchinson (Thumpermonkey / Olid / Todger).

I am lucky enough to have convinced this excellent group of musicians to learn and play a load of songs that I deliberately wrote very, very quickly. Imagine my surprise when they all said, “Yeah, that sounds alright, lets just play it as it is”.

The only failure here lies in the fact that I tried to write pop songs, but apparently 3 minute songs with a verse / chorus structure aren’t pop if the time signature keeps changing and the lyrics are all about goblins. I hope this tells you everything you need to know.

You can listen to a shonky bedroom demo of ‘Pickaxe’ here:
